networks what they're talking but it's oh, my gosh, cannot cut government spending. that is what got us the stimulus bill which was oppose posted tot down to 5.5%. lori: let's talk particulars. you referenced some middle ground possibility that increasing the threshold. what is the likelihood of that? >> i'm not endorsing that. just talking what options people are talking about. i think that is a possible middle ground position. mother possibly to think about is maybe separating out the tax rate that is imposed on business income, somebody like lebron james could pay the higher rate but those with business income would pay a lower rate. melissa: come back on soon, please. lori: another sequester, kicking the can down the road. melissa: israel expands the scope of activists to more densely packed areas. death toll nearing 100. hamas leaders calling for israel to end the attack in egypt along with turkey have stepped attempts to grover a peace fire. they're looking for a cease-fire to egypt today. israel began missile strike last week in response to a month of rocket fire from the gaza st

to the u.s., it's good to have you on our program. good morning to you. are these reports out of cairo true or is israel ready for a ground invasion? >> i can't confirm the reports. we want an end to the fighting. we want hamas to stop shooting at israeli families who are in bomb shelters. they have had 1,000 rockets fired at them. we want hamas to stop fighting. hamas has to stop firing and we have to create a situation where they can't go back to where they were before, every other week some hamas people would send a million israelis into bomb shelters. no country would tolerate that situation. israel has the right to defend itself and has the right to decide how to best defend itself. bill: i want to show the long-term picture. here is gaza. it runs 25 miles in length. you have the border checkpoint where the israeli government has documented that weapons have gone under various tunnels and roads. i'll show you a wider area. what we have been hearing is about the sinai peninsula. that that's become more lawless than in the past. one more advance here. i want to show folks what's happenin
of the economy and only because of that. >>stuart: art laffer, a pretty grim picture but thanks for joining us. now, we are fair and balanced, new democrat network president thinks hiking taxes on high income earners is the way to go. so, welcome back to the program, simon. we have discussed this before. you think raising taxes on high income earners is what bill clinton did in the 1990's and we have been through this before. may i raise a separate concern here for a second. under the president's own plan, we are going do get a total debt of $20 trillion at the end of the second term, that is the president's own plan and that is based on optimistic thinking about economic growth down the road. are you comfortable with rolling the dice and going to $20 trillion total debt? >>guest: let's talk about the fiscal cliff because it is a down payment toward reducing the deficit over all. if we do nothing the plan congress passed last year with lots of republican votes would raise taxes on everyone and cut spending dramatically creating a massive deficit reduction land. that is what is about to happen
see it picking off targets right above us. i remember one particular barrage that went past, we were laying on the ground, just looking up in the sky and you could see puffs of smoke from where it was picking off the rockets and it was at least a dozen rockets that came by that were picked off and, of course, some of them do make it through. but the worst of times, these barrages can be quite bad and they can be quite scary. for the people on the ground, especially for the children, who are witnessing this year, in these areas, deb. >> what is so fascinating is that you talk about israel says it has -- it is firing in retaliation and in order to wipe out the stockpiles of these rockets and they're launching the ground offensive, apparently in order to get to the site of the launchpads. have you seen any of the -- any of the israeli forces that have been called up by any chance? >> reporter: oh, certainly. if you go around the border area, you will see a massive military buildup. we were just here, tens of thousands of reservists are on stand by. tens of thousands of troops have alrea
to remove it at the drinking water treatment plant. lloyd: what epa said to us was, "you can have an exemption from filtration "if you keep this undeveloped, "and if you can manage the wastewater so that it does not pollute your water supply." and we feel that we've reached the point where we can really keep it clean enough to drink unfiltered for the indefinite future. and new york city is in a small club of cities that actually have that filtration avoidance waiver. narrator: while municipalities are responsible for maintaining systems and source supply, the standards that protect water are established at the federal level. there are two important pieces of federal legislation that were both enacted in the early to mid-1970s. the first was the clean water act, which acts to protect rivers and lakes, and sources of drinking water. the second was the safe drinking water act, that provides federal standards to assure the safety of the water that we drink. both acts have been amended since they were first adopted, and they're both cornerstones for the water issues that we face in am
